Degree with Foundation Year (Creative Campus)

Successful completion of the Foundation Year will enable you to progress into the first year (Level C) of your chosen honours degree. If you are a full time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to relevant criteria).

A significant part of our Degree with Foundation Year focuses upon core skills such as academic writing at HE level, becoming an independent learner, structuring academic work, critical thinking, time management and note taking.

The Degree with Foundation Year is particularly suitable for those who wish to undertake studies in the following subjects. 


Visual Art



Fine Art



Graphic Design

Music Production

Drama & Theatre Studies

Digital Creativity



Contemporary Fashion Design


The Foundation Year is a full-time course and forms the first year of a 4-year degree. You will be a student of the University and have access to all the standard support systems and resources that any degree student would be able to access.

Programme structure

Teaching on this programme will be a mixture of lectures, tutorials and individual learning. You will have approximately 12 teaching hours per week, for 24 weeks of the year.

Assessment and feedback

Assessment during Foundation Year includes essays, presentations and portfolio work. You will be given feedback on all of your assessments and have the opportunity to discuss this with your tutor in detail. Most feedback on assessments is provided in written form, although some may be supported by oral feedback. Assessments and feedback at Foundation Year level will provide an understanding of what is to be expected across the other three years of your four-year study.
